A convenient one-pot Mannich-type-cyclization-oxidation tandem process has been developed for the synthesis of 1,3,5-trisubstituted pyrazoles derivatives from aldehydes, hydrazines and alkynes using p-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate (PTSA) as a multifunctional catalyst. This method provides a flexible and rapid route to 1,3,5-trisubstituted
